    awalde's Note:

    Sahlep is a delicious creamy Turkish drink. I found sahlep powder in a Turkish shop, that I bough without knowing what it was. In the internet (http://morselsandmusings.blogspot.com/2006/08/sahlep-salep-sahlab.html) I found the explanations and this delicious ancient recipe. Sahlep, a Turkish winter drink, is made from the dried powdered roots of a mountain orchid. The powder is then heated with milk, sugar and cinnamon to make a thick dairy beverage. In modern day Turkey, sahlep is used to cure sore throats and coughs and is only served during the cold months.

      This is a different and fun drink :) It grew on me with each sip. I had to change it somewhat to fit our diet of dairy free, so I used Make Your Own Almond or Cashew Milk which is creamy. It was good and I do use almond milk as a sub often. I'm not sure why it says instant tea, I think it should only say salep powder from looking at other recipes on Google. I wonder if this recipe is calling for real salep powder or the salep drink mix. Reading online, I understand it is hard or maybe impossible to find real salep powder outside of Turkey, so since I do not reside in Turkey and I imagine with regards to what I read online the fake stuff would probably contain corn starch I used potato starch and added a splash of Iranian rose water (Iranian part being my preference) after heating since I also understand the powder to be aromatic like a flower and lightly taste of a flower. I followed the rest! Made for Veggie Swap 31 ~ February 2011.

      Ahhh...comforting! I *finally* made this! I've been looking at it for years, lol. I did some googling since I've not been able to find sahlep powder. So, I used 2T cornstarch for 2c milk. I did double the sugar, as per personal preference. I added about 1/2 tsp orange flower water, 2 wee drops of coconut extract (does sahlep taste a bit coconutty?) The end result was creamy - the cornstarch didn't turn it into pudding! - and delicious! I shared it with my daughter who is also very happy now. Be careful when heating milk....nothing, nothing, nothing, BOIL OVER! (I did catch it in time). Made for NA/ME Tag Winter '14.

      I'm not going to star rate this because I used green tea powder (from Asian market.) I liked it! Very different. Tried locating sahlep in town but to no avail. Reviewed for NA*ME tag/February.
